Check out a previous thread I started.

specifically my reply #25

This sounds like the problem you both have. There are 2 ways of power management, APM and ACPI..... APM is an old way and has been deprecated, APM works via the bios while ACPI is OS based. Modern kernels no longer have the APM modules built and this causes problems with shutdown in old machines.

The easiest solution is to search the bios for power management settings and disable them. This allows the software based ACPI to work.

Hope this helps :)

My mother has a laptop that gets stuck on every reboot and shutdown.  I have to manually shut it down using the power button.  I don't recall this happening in earlier Ubuntu based Linux distros.  But with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based distros, it does.  I only tried Linux Lite 4.x and Linux Mint 19.x Cinnamon and MATE versions.  It wouldn't take a LM Cinnamon installation, and it gets stuck on reboots/shutdowns when using LL 4.x or LM Mate 19.x.  Not sure what the problem is.  I didn't try the following, but maybe this might help:

I plan on giving these options a try.  I may start with the first one that discusses "acpi=off".

@Jerry ,


That's good to hear.  I have several folks I've helped move to Linux who I don't trust to manually run updates.  Maybe your auto-updates feature can go one step further and autoremove the old kernels.  Then things will be even closer to "install it and forget it" for those who want it that way.


On Antergos, I was suprised to read about their demise this morning.  I recall seeing so many YouTube videos about them being the best way to get an Arch Linux install going, without doing it from absolute scratch.

...and I'd prefer an auto-update option.

That's a feature I need to add in the future, keep meaning to do it. Enable | Disable Automatic Updates.

Yes. (To Safely Remove/Eject, I mean.) That is, when it lets me. It doesn't always let me, and sometimes when that happens, it NEVER tells me it's been released. I also try using the eject triangle next to the drive's name, which I assume does the same thing. I like Lite a lot but honestly, the problems I've had with using USB drives have been pretty much constant.
@Tyrannocaster ,


When you remove the USB, are you right clicking on the USB's icon via the file manager (Thunar) and selecting Unmount or Safely Remove/Eject?

I miss Systemback (not Lite's fault) and I'd prefer an auto-update option.  But Linux Lite is super quick, reliable, and it has the best Help Manual.

@Bart Leetch ,


Please define what you mean by normal shutdown.

Well that was a surprise.  It was good to a point . But it lack a lot of stuff.  Community was somewhat ok. This why I have stick with lite. To a point this been the best distro around.
